Let’s face it, there’s not much you can’t find on Google these days. Managing your personal brand has never been more critical.
I find it fascinating how different companies manage their technology policies and more specifically how they approach social media in the workplace.
More and more Australian companies are using social media to engage with customer base yet shy away from it internally. It seems to be one of those things that still strikes fear into the hearts of many executive teams.
LinkedIn has grown and evolved a lot over the past few years. I seem to be talking about it more and more as a viable social media channel with clients and colleagues. Admittedly, I don’t post a lot on my LinkedIn profile; I joined in 2009 because that’s what everyone was doing and I like playing with new toys. The way I use LinkedIn in 2012 is very different to how I used it when I first joined. Like most social media channels, it’s grown and evolved into a useful tool. I login most days to the industry headlines that trend and I use it a lot for research.
